Arlington Home of the Week: 209 Waverley St.

Vintage styling and current designs in Dallin neighborhood.


A contemporary bungalow is a unique purchase opportunity in the Arlington real estate market. This lovely 76 year-old property possesses all the charm of its era, but has also received many updates and renovations through the years to offer its current residents all the comforts and conveniences needed for today's busy families.

A traditional farmer's porch and front foyer welcomes guests into the spacious 2,253 square feet of living space. The 12 x 21 square foot fireplaced living room provides the perfect neutral foundation with hardwood floors, natural trimmings and off-white walls while the adjacent sun-filled 11 x 12 square foot dining area with a built-in china cabinet offers the ideal place setting for both formal and casual dining.

The open kitchen shares a large bank of windows and is nicely accented with gleaming white cabinets, hardwood floors and recessed lighting. The adjoining family room not only draws natural sunlight from the fabulous oversized casements, but also from skylights drenching the 10 x 26 square foot room with natural sunlight. The room also providing a spectacular view of the deck and sprawling back landscape.

A pair of French doors lead into a bonus room that could be used as a home office or fourth bedroom, but a 12 x 13 square foot bedroom and full bath already reside on this floor for potential single-floor living.

The magnificent 14 x 17 square foot master bedroom on the second floor offers a skylight, walk-in closet and private deck that provides access through a spiral staircase to a unique crows-nest roof deck. An additional 12 x 18 square foot bedroom and newly renovated full bath complete the living options on this level.

This lovely home is located in the highly desirable Dallin School neighborhood and the combination of its location, architecture and condition make it a highly popular prospect for potential Arlington homebuyers and one that will likely not remain on the market for very long.
